Planet Gokia[edit]

Far off in the stars twinkles a F-class yellow-white star known as Photuris, a star system with 11 recognized planets, including its second planet, Gokia, home of the gokiburi. Gokia has one large moon with a thin but present atmosphere and no life more complicated than algae. It's name is Blatta, and currently has scientific outposts upon it.

Plane Links[edit]

As a material plane based planet, it has all the normal links to the ethereal, shadow, and astral planes as normal.

Planet Inhabitants[edit]

The planet Gokia is actually home to native two sapient species, though only one makes itself known on a cosmic scale, the insectiod gokiburi who rule the landscape, and the aquatic brachyura whom largely have been pushed to underwater living. Sparse other species not native to the planet occasionally live there, as Gokia is open to visitors, including seppia and uberich visitors, though the latter is seen with great suspicion and a watchful eye, as the uberich rarely have good intentions. They have a scientific interest in the tempus, hoping that the long-lived spacefarers have had come across Gokia in earlier times. Strange ruins of buildings dot the landscape from a time before the gokiburi rose, and their creators are a mystery to them, the race leaving not even a trace of its presence left.

Movement and Combat[edit]

As an Earth-like planet, combat on Gokia is no different from normal.

Features of the Planet[edit]

Gokia is somewhat warmer than typical earth, more as if it were earth in its Cretaceous period with its relatively warm climate and high eustatic sea level. Vast deserts dominate the deep inland while tropical lush landscapes take over the coastlines. The warmer-than-normal sun and its relatively high carbon dioxide content produces the thermal effects seen. Storms are common, separated by periods of absolute calm.

Planet Encounters[edit]

The gokiburi homeworld has a strong military presence with a heavy focus on army and ground troops. The large amount of troops are largely a holdover, and subtle threat, from a war between the gokiburi and the brachyura. For the most part the planet is at peace on its homeworld, the military focused on shows of patriotism and pride. Most current battles take outside the Gokian homeworld, between gokiburi and uberich ships and in places where the gokiburi attempt planetary investigation or colonization.

Gokia is however home to quite a lush selection of flora and fauna, and as upon many a world, it is dangerous to walk through the wild untamed jungles alone, lest you be eaten by something fierce.

Alternate Variances[edit]

While tropical and desert cover much of the land, it is still an Earth-like world and thus host to all manner of environments, including a small but frigid pair of ice caps.
